Defensive end Anthony Spencer says he may need surgery to repair his left knee.

The Dallas Morning News' Brandon George recaps what stood out to him during the second day of practice in Oxnard, Calif.

New York Giants

The Giants will catch a big break if Von Miller is suspended for the team's Sept. 15 game against the Denver Broncos.

ESPNNewYork.com's Ohm Youngmisuk offers a preview of the defensive line.

Philadelphia Eagles

Quarterback Nick Foles has his eyes on the prize heading into training camp. “I have all the confidence in the world in my ability,” Foles said. “But I still respect the players around me and I know what they’re capable of doing. But at the end of the day, I’m not here to be a backup. I’m here to be the guy. I don’t think we play this game to sit on the bench. We play it to play, and I’m here to play.”

Bob Ford of the Philadelphia Inquirer discusses how important tight ends are to Chip Kelly's offense. Ford: "When all the Eagles have reported to camp and the first full-team practice takes place on Friday, seven tight ends will be trying to find some room on Chip Kelly's first NFL roster. Who knows? Maybe they all will. Not likely, but no position on offense will gain more importance in the Andy Reid-to-Kelly shift than tight end. With the Eagles, the tight end role is going to be transformed from a somewhat necessary afterthought to the most versatile cog of an offense that will be built on versatility."

Washington Redskins

From our own Adam Schefter: "Despite Robert Griffin III being medically cleared to participate in training camp, it still would be a major surprise if he played in a preseason game based on Mike Shanahan's coaching history and the thoughts of some in Washington Redskins organization."

Another year, another battle for veteran safety Reed Doughty.
